Summer is the time for outdoor fun, and for many people, swimming is a popular pastime. This home allows for swimming enjoyment in its own backyard.
The deck leads down to the rear lot where mature trees and azaleas surround the pool and the gazebo behind. Adjoining the deck, the skylit screened porch displays a multipaned glass door that opens onto the breakfast nook.
The kitchen features new stainless-steel appliances, paneled cabinets and granite counters. They include the cooking and breakfast bar that separate the kitchen from the breakfast nook, where a Tiffany-style chandelier conveys. A hallway leads from the kitchen to a main-floor bedroom and full bath.
On the opposite side of the breakfast nook, the adjoining family room shares the impressive rear view. Windows frame the fireplace, which stands beside full-length built-in shelves and cabinets. Multipaned glass French doors lead to the front living room.
Like so many fine homes, this one combines the open, flowing, contemporary rear area with a formal colonial front. The living and dining rooms stand on either side of the two-story entrance hall, following the classic 18th-century design.
The two-story foyer displays an arched Palladian multipaned window above the entrance door and a chandelier that conveys. Crown molding and chair rail appear in the living and dining room, which also provides a chandelier that conveys. Both rooms feature multipaned windows and the hardwood floors that continue throughout the first and second level.
The entrance door faces the winding two-story stairway leading up to the central landing and the rear laundry room. They stand between the master suite and the other two bedrooms. Adjoining the master bedroom, the rear bath boasts a new glass-enclosed shower, a corner jetted whirlpool tub and dual sinks. Across the hall, a front and rear bedroom share a central hallway bath.
At the bottom of the stairs, another full bath adjoins the recreation room. Extending the length of the house, the recreation area includes multipaned glass French doors to the media room with built-in shelves and desk.
The side-loading garage blends with the colonial facade, where shuttered multipaned windows frame the entrance door in the fresh vinyl exterior. The garage adjoins the rear hallway, facing the bath between the main-floor bedroom and kitchen. Four miles away, the Oakton Shopping Center provides a Giant supermarket and pharmacy. The public schools are Flint Hill Elementary, Thoreau Middle and Madison High.
